Parents who wish to enroll their children (age at least 7+ years) in our preparation program for First Holy Communion (celebrated in the spring of 2022) are asked to please contact the ESM Office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your child is baptized, please attach a PDF scan of the baptismal certificate. If your child is not yet baptized, please indicate this in your email. The office will collect your name and details and provide you with the necessary registration form. The class at St. Bernard's is FULL, but spaces are still available at St. Elisabeth's.
The communal celebration of Holy Mass with their peers and families is a key component of a young child's formation in the Catholic faith. Therefore, there is an expectation for families to attend Sunday Mass in the English-speaking Mission during the time of preparation (directly following the 10 am class). Families who are unable to commit to this are asked to defer enrollment until they can do so.
